p-spectra and geometry of compact flat manifolds


Roberto Miatello

Universidad Nacional de Cordoba



We will discuss some recent results concerning the p-form spectra
of a compact flat manifold M and the length spectra of closed geodesics in
M. We will also show compact flat manifolds that are strongly isospectral
but have non-isomorphic cohomology rings.
